    The Rock :0a34: :0a34:

    I'm told that there is a huge rock near a gravel pit on Hwy.25 in rural Iowa. For generations, kids have painted slogans, names, and obscenities on this rock, changing its character many times. A few months back, the rock received its latest paint job, and since then it has been left completely undisturbed. It's quite an impressive sight. Be sure to scroll down and check out the multiple photos (all angles) of the rock. I thought the flag was draped over the rock, but it's not. It's actually painted on the rock too.

    "God Bless America" "OUR SOLDIERS AND VET

    Be sure to check out the pics I hope this one stays on the board for a while.
    Every one needs to see these picks.The painter has done this rock justice.

    There is 7 pics I will try to put them all on in a line if no one reply first.That the only way I know how to do it.


    THIS IS THE HOME OF THE FREE AND THE BRAVE.I THINK ALL OUR Soldiers HAVE PAID THE PRICE SO WE CAN BE HERE ON THE { BOC }.

    Yeah, that's pretty neat. It would be a shame if some punks deface it now.

    Thanks Ace, it does my heart good to know that there are still some with great pride in our country, too often we take our great blessings for granted and forget that we are the greatest country on the face of this planet due to the sacrifices of many who never lived long enough to see the how important their contributions really were.

    Ace Thank you,
    Big cat Chaser, you said it for me.
    I hope it last a very long time.
    A museum is where it should be.
    The artist has talent sublime
    It was done for free
    for all to see.

    Here is a link to the latest pictures of "the rock" as well as some info on the artist.
